Wordless Wednesday: Happy third birthday

I'm a little behind getting my Wordless Wednesday post up this week after our spectacular Carnival of Natural Parenting yesterday — be sure to check out all the fun posts on ways to enjoy the outdoors with your kids, no matter the weather or location. And appreciate our own enjoyment of the outdoors below at my son's third birthday party! (How is it possible that he's three??) And forgive the captions, because I just can't resist today!

Oh, clothes! You shouldn't have. No, really.

Guess who picked out his own shoes for the day!

Guess who's been eating watermelon and ketchupy hot dogs.
Guess who's wearing a new white shirt.

Fun with a paratrooper!

Uh-oh!
You'll be happy to know one of the resourceful guests
scrambled up onto the roof and retrieved it.

It looks like a great day. Congrats on his inch of growth (from Twitter). He'll be able to ride the big rides at the fair soon enough.

Betsy B. Honest said...

aw. happy birthday little Mikko. It's my personal theory, by the by, that they are babies until they are precisely 3 and a half. That's basically when they start yelling "I'm not a baby!"

Mon said...
